Things To Do

Welcome to the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt Geocaching Program! Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity that uses a GPS unit or smartphone to locate hidden containers, called geocaches. However, some geocaches require solving a puzzle or answering questions about an area's history or natural resources. If you are new to geocaching, you may want to begin by checking out Geocaching 101, an official guide to the game. Participants may register for a free basic membership at to search for geocaches and share stories about those geocaches they find. The following geocaches are located at Eleanor Roosevelt N.H.S, Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt N.H.S, and Vanderbilt Mansion N.H.S:

Hyde Park Trails

The HPT system currently includes about 34 miles of trails, including trails within 3 National Park units, a State Park complex, 3 Town Parks, and a land trust nature preserve, connected in large part by trail easements across private lands, as well as on-road linkages. All trails in the Hyde Park Trail system were designated National Recreation Trails by the U. S. Department of the Interior in 2006, and their formal designation as Hudson River Valley Greenway Trails was underway in 2018.
